Pepper Lovers Pack - TUES
- 2 pints shishitos - Mostly mild with the occasional bit of spice, these little peppers are delicious sauteed whole in hot oil. Chopped in pieces they make a fun pizza topping.
- 1 pint heirloom chiles - All of these chilies have a decent amount of heat (somewhere on the medium to medium high range). Some are fruity, some are smokey, but all are unique and interesting. The peppers included are: Thai Hot, Lemon Drop (Aji Limon), Sugar Rush Peach, Fish, Chilhuachle Negro, Aji Mango.
- 2 lbs sweet peppers - These peppers are great for roasting which concentrates their sweetness. Put on sandwiches, pizzas, and salad. Combine with onions and zucchini for veggie kebabs.
The Farm at Sunnyside is managed by Stacey and Casey. We first met them at the Arlington Farmers Market in 2013 when starting Number 1 Sons. Stacey and Casey are phenomenal farmers and managers tending to the health of their land, soil, staff and our community with their nutritious + delicious vegetables. You may have eaten their vegetables at the Dupont Circle Farmers Market, Falls Church Farmers Market, The Dabney or A Rake's Progress :)
The farm borders the Shenandoah National Park - read more about their conservation efforts on their website. We love visiting Sunnyside and learning about cover crops, compost, field rotation, food safety processes, and working with a seasonal farm staff - Stacey and Casey excel at all these things!
